Anyone game for one of these to warm up a few results?

Perhaps they might consider showing the world what one of those can do with some optimized SETI crunching code?

What? 6kW of Lunatics crunching? Phew... I wonder what that would add up to?

I'd guess you'd get the highest cobblers value by running PrimeGrid. The Lunatics numbers for s@h would still be rather interesting...

I guess not Martin.

The PrimeGrid 3,375 cobblers is small compared Donate@Home which gives 5,900 and Free Rainbow which, for the new long WU, credits 19825 per valid returned result.

Is that per individual WU?

I was meaning rate as in cobblestones per second. For systems running an nVidia GPU, I've found PrimeGrid to rattle through at a phenomenal rate compared to other projects...

Or are there some new developments?...

So $15,000 for the box. Then you still need a system with 4 x16 slots to connect the interface cards to the box & then the GPUs.

There are some absurd RACs being generated at Distributed Rainbow Table Generator these days.

So much so, as to render the GFLOPs numbers at Top 100 multi-project BOINC participants (which are reverse-engineered from the rate of credit awarded) completely fictional.

Credits isn't a measure of science done.

Flops isn't one either. Any half decent coder can do something that uses a lot of cycles while not acompishing anything.

You can't compare credit cross-project. period.

There's a whole bunch of reasons but I'll take the fundamental one:

You can't compare the science of different projects. Not in science terms and not in computational mathematics terms.

Now here's a subversive idea. You set up a project that gives out lots of credit for some imaginary goal. What you are actually doing is redirecting the work of other projects. How about that? People get lots of them credits (I still fail to find anything you could buy with them) and the less paying projects get science done.
